Family. Hard work. Darn-good BBQ. That’s what Shane Thompson built his business around. In 2002, Shane ditched his corporate job, tossed his tie and followed a dream with his wife, Stacey. He dusted off his grandfather Big Dad’s secret BBQ recipe and opened up the very first Shack in McDonough, GA. It wasn’t long before the community noticed how he always gives people more than what they pay for and treats everybody like family. https://www.shanesribshack.com/locations/
